ECE®Aid – You Can Help Someone in Need

What is ECE®Aid?

ECE®Aid is a charitable initiative developed to provide fee waivers for educational credential reports for vulnerable populations, such as refugees. ECE requests donations from those who have benefited from its services in the past, new applicants who would like to “pay it forward,” and those who understand the importance of the work we do and its role in building a safe, strong, diverse and productive society. 


Why should you donate to this cause?

With a donation of any amount, you can help to pay for an educational credential evaluation for someone in need. And your contribution is an investment in both an individual's future and our community. A gift to ECE®Aid…

  • Opens the door to educational and/or professional fulfillment
  • Provides an experienced workforce in high-demand occupations
  • Protects public safety through credential checks

A donation to ECE now could help transform a person in fragile circumstances into an integrated and productive member of society. Will you help?

How is the money raised distributed?

ECE partners with experienced, trusted agencies and institutions to distribute fee-waiver vouchers to qualifying immigrants. ACCESS, IRIS, and North Hennepin Community College. ECE does not provide complimentary reports directly to individuals.
